    Conflicted

    I feel like my last relationship messed me up emotionally for a while. On one hand, I am wary of losing control of my emotions again. Then again, I really would like to experience a committed long-term relationship. Maybe it is possible to be with someone and not break up?

    Still Standing

    When we broke up, I was getting out of the car. We had just shared a small dinner date of silence and lobster, and I expected to hear the usual "I love you," and a goodnight kiss. This time, I got the kiss. Then, I got the, "I'm leaving you for your stepsister." And then he was...

    Humanity's idea of "love" is fickle, you'll know when you really love someone or something.
